of gridlock government, nothing getting done, the deficit exploding even further, and more czars and regulations from the white house. >> and let me tell you, ryan's not going to make one bit of difference in this race. >> sean: we'll see. 43 days to go. this is like our super bowl. thanks for being with us. greta is next to go on the record. we'll see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight a bump in the road. is that what president obama calls it? and now could that bump in the road turn into a major roadblock for president obama's campaign? republicans tearing into the president for downplaying the violence in the middle east. in a tv interview last night president obama referring to the recent outbreaks of anti-american violence as "bumps in the road." >> have recent events in the middle east given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the arab spring? >> well, i said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. the question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. i think it was absolutely the
." >> have recent events in the middle east given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the arab spring? >> well, i said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. the question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights, a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance, but i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood elect a member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 people have been killed in syria. we have tumult in pakistan. and of course iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see! >> when he said, "bump in the road," did he mean not to draw or define that event in banghazi? >> the president
be that the government is encouraging them not to. it could be that that they just have concluded that they would make such a presence if they went in, that they could become a sizable target. i just don't know. i think it's unfortunate that they've not been able to get into the crime scene. >> greta: you know, i've always been on the outside. it's very different on the outside than the inside. i'm curious if you have any sort of thought why the administration went out with the youtube video theory to begin with, because on the outside, it's 9/11, it's americans in a hostile environment, and on our territory, a consulate in libya, yet they went out with the youtube and they stuck with it for so many days. you know, even without the ability of intelligence, i would have at least couched it differently. >> well, you're quite right. they made a terrible mistake. i think what they did was, you know, hope springs eternal. they wanted it to be the youtube and they -- it was much more convenient from the administration's standpoint to have it be the film that nobody's seen. and yet it demonstrated such serio
with foreign ministers, which are her counterparts in the government. she found time in her busy schedule to meet these people. >> well, there's a huge difference. hillary clinton is a serious person. barack obama is an ambitious person. they're very different personalities. hillary clinton actually gets up every day thinking about public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about barack obama. i mean, they're very different approaches to life. i think those of us who are his critics need to get over and understand, this who is president. this is a man who in the age of false celebritihood is sort of the perfect president, because he's a false president. he's a guy who doesn't do the president's job. he's had 39% of the briefings on intelligence, the daily briefings. he goes to las vegas while there's an attack on banghazi. >> bill: i give him a pass on that, because you don't want terrorists to think they've disrupted. i'm critical of the fact that he's not meeting with presidents that would be routine in new york. >> let's put it this way, then. for 10 days after the banghazi
've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor r
the netanyahu government in particular. but i think what's really driving obama right now is he doesn't want anything to happen before november 6th. he doesn't want to meet with any world leaders who might say something off script. he doesn't want to meet with bibi netanyahu and risk another blowdown just before the election. he'd just as soon go through the motions and hope the rest of the world takes a nap for the next six weeks. on september 11th we had a tragedy in banghazi, and security threats to our embassy in cairo. that's the kind of intrusion into the well-oiled obama campaign machinery that he doesn't want to see. >> greta: well, a tweet coming out of government press office gpo israel read something like this. it says, israel official, obama doesn't give a same sense clinton did that he'll be there in things go bad. certainly sounds like if over in israel, among some people in israel, that they have very big doubts about president obama. >> well, they should. look, i think obama fears -- at this moment, i think obama fears an israeli military strike against iran's nuclear weapons
at it and says this is a terrorist attack. our government only says that when they know for sure it is one. >> greta: apparently they do intelligence internally that said it was a terrorist attack, and when it happened, if i was the president, the first thing i would say, what happened? >> right. look, there's definitely a big back story that none of us know about it. there will be an investigation. the senators are calling for it. one of the things that could have happened simply is the guys who did this are on the run. we actually had intelligence maybe that says that they kind of knew the neighbor neighborhot they were going in. they want to keep them there. they don't want them to run to another country now, so you put out the word that this wasn't a terrorist attack. >> greta: put a street story out? >> yeah. we know who did it, we're coming for you, only gets them to go run. i don't know any of this, but i'm saying there are plausible things that we'll find out something, because none of this story makes sense. i agree with rush, none of it makes sense, but i don't think it's -- i do
of them. you don't know. >> it's three agencies of government when i get there that are gone. commerce, education, and the -- what's the third one there? let's see. >> one brain freeze can end your campaign. >> the -- umm. >> commerce? commerce. and let's see -- >> rick perry was a serious contender until this debate. >> oops. >> forgetting is bad, and looking bad is bad. in the very first tv debate, richard nixon refused to put on makeup. it hurt him. nixon later said -- >> more important than what you say is how you look on television. >> so campaigns obsess over details. when ronald reagan debated walter mondale, rollins and beckel were the opposing campaign managers. >> do you remember how high the podiums would be? >> days. >> we had days negotiating. >> the color of the room. >> what difference would it make to the candidate what color the room was? >> because in certain conditions, certain colors work for certain candidates. >> because mondale was shorter than reagan -- >> we wanted more distance between the two podiums. we debated between 7 1/2 feet and 9 feet for a day and a h
